DENVER – An Assistant U.S. Attorney has been appointed to oversee any reports of election fraud and voter rights infringement in Colorado on Election Day.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason St. Julien will oversee the handling of all complaints from the state as part of a joint effort between the U.S. Attorney’s Office and U.S. Department of Justice.

The DOJ monitors reports every election and has people overseeing all complaints in every part of the country.

The FBI will have special agents at field offices nationwide. Anyone hoping to contact FBI Colorado agents with any reports of voter fraud or infringement on or ahead of Election Day can call 303-629-7171.

The Civil Rights Division’s Voting Section will also be taking complaints at 1-800-253-3931 or (202) 307-2767, by fax at (202) 307-3961, by email to voting.section@usdoj.gov or by complaint form at http://www.justice.gov/crt/complaint/votintake/index.php.

Voter fraud and election infringement is punishable by fines and jail time.

“Every citizen must be able to vote without interference or discrimination and to have that vote counted – and not be stolen by fraud,” Acting U.S. Attorney Bob Troyer said in a news release. “The Department of Justice will act promptly and aggressively to protect the integrity of the election process.”
